RE

LO: To recognise Communion

With an adult, talk about what is happening in the picture in Church’s Story 1 pages 28-29 (people receiving Holy Communion). Holy Communion means being close to Jesus and God his Father. It also means being close to each other. We are all God’s children.

Think about the key questions below:

• What do you see in the picture? (Priest, people, Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion, Chalice)
• What is happening? (The priest giving the host, Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion giving the chalice)
• What do people do who do not receive Holy Communion? (cross arms against their chest and receive a blessing)

Now, write 3 sentences to explain what happens at Mass. Think about:

• Who blesses the Communion gifts? (The priest/Father Mark)
• What does the priest give during Communion? (Bread and wine)
• What do the parishoners do while other people receive Communion? (Sing hymns, pray)

EXT:  You could create your own picture of Mass and label it. Try to include:

• Priest
• Parishoners
• Communion wine
